Ketogenic Diet

Greetings, Gents.My wife recently went on a ketogenic diet to assist with some health issues that have plagued her the past couple of years.  The more she talks about it, the more intrigued I have become.  My weight has slowly climbed in the 14 years that we've been married, and now I'm tipping the scales at about 330 pounds (which I carry pretty well on my 6'5" frame).  I'm down 10 from my peak just from increasing my movement throughout the day, but I really want to kick it up a notch. I'm…See More

Jonathan replied to Brian's discussion simple question about undershirts!
"I have the same problem, but when I purchased the Big & Tall sizes, the sleeves of the undershirt were too long and would sometimes show when I wore a short-sleeved overshirt."

Jonathan replied to Jon Kramer's discussion Shaving....Down There?
"I can relate.  I am also very hairy all over, so if I were to shave my groin area it would be an island of baldness in a sea of hair.  Not an attractive thought and I would never want to try to go whole hog.  Imagine the razors I…"

Jonathan replied to Chris Hamm's discussion Who Wears a Watch Anymore?
"Those watches look very nice, but I can't see myself paying more than $100 for a watch at this point.  I'm looking for something sturdy, but inexpensive, and relatively stylish."

Jonathan replied to Chris Hamm's discussion Who Wears a Watch Anymore?
"Thanks for the education on the crystal types.  It looks like the watch I linked to has a plated brass case, so that's a no go.  I really liked the green dial face, though.   I guess I'll keep looking."

Quote
"It is the critical moment that shows the man. So when the crisis is upon you, remember that God, like a trainer of wrestlers, has matched you with a rough and stalwart antagonist. -- 'To what end?' you ask. That you may prove the victor at the Great Games. Yet without toil and sweat this may not be!" --The Golden Sayings of Epictetus, LCVII

Hi there Jonathan. Welcome to AoM and to the Christian Men's group. I have a daily Bible study there you might be interested in. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my group, The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you aboard.
